Body Confidence

I am typing this while T.V. is on in the background, there is a discussion a 'facial' for your nether regions.

Seriously?! They even have a name for it, a vagacial!

I do understand that everyone likes to keep their lady garden trimmed, but do you not think this is going a little far. I think most of us want to put a little effort into how we look. Some women more than others, I've seen plenty of mothers, over my years doing the school run, who obviously got up an hour earlier just to make sure they're hair and make up are perfect. I have absolutely no problem with that. It's your body, you treat it how you like.

The argument for was very reasonable. "Some women have problems after waxing, this cleans up the area, removes ingrowing hairs, and moisturising" I am not quoting exactly, but that was the gist of it.

Ok I understand that you would want to keep your area tidy and clean, but if you have a reaction of any type  I would think a doctor or dermatologist would be a better place to look for help?? 

I am shocked at the how far the beauty business is going. I don't have a problem with anybody who chooses to do this to their body, I just wonder why? Is it an issue of body confidence?

I have very little body confidence, I really don't like the way I look, and would love to slim down and look better in clothing (and out of it). I simply couldn't imagine going to my local hair stylist/ beautician and getting it all out! I've had one or two spray tans in the past, I have never stripped off totally though! I have also had my eyebrows waxed and shaped, does that make me the same as someone who does it anywhere else?

So is it body confidence or simply wanting to look good?
Or are they the same thing, and I'm just a prude?

Would you do it?

  1. I think for some it's more being concious of how other people see them these days, we live in a world that really puts pressure on us to attain perfection - and doing ridiculous things like a vagacial (seems ridiculous in my eyes) is likely to impress another person, rather than the woman herself.

    You have to ask who they're wanting to look good for? In my case I like to look good for myself (which I believe is what body confidence is) whilst simply wanting to look good I believe reflects a desire to look good for others...if you see what I mean?

    So, no! You're not being a prude! A vagacial sounds bit too far in my opinion! I don't think I could get out my nether region for any old stranger in a salon!



I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
